Black Canyon Trail, AZ, Hike and Mountain Bike

I live in a beautiful valley in Central Arizona, called the Verde Valley. The Verde Valley has the Sedona area that people come to see from all over the world. But in my area there are many other things that often get over looked. I live in the town of Cottonwood it is south of Sedona and just south of me is a mountain ridge that reaches heights of over 8000 ft. elevation. On the side of this mountain ridge is a trail that climbs up a drainage called Black Canyon. This trail is designated by the Forest service as Black Canyon Trail #114. Most people just hike up and down the trail and many people descend the trail on mountain bikes, but few go off trail and see the hidden secret. Down hidden in the drainage of Black Canyon is a beautiful waterfall. Being in the desert southwest I think it usually only runs in the winter when there is snow on the top of the mountain. This waterfall is a bit difficult to get to so it keeps the masses away. It is pretty much an all day in and out hike, with some steep climbs and some off trail scrambling, but the hike has many rewards, like great views of the Verde Valley and seclusion from all the tourists that swarm the Sedona trails. This area is wild and has deer, elk, mountain lions, bear, and lots of javalinas.
You start the hike at a parking area at the end of Ogden Ranch Road. If there is any snow on the mountains then the waterfall will be flowing. The trailhead elevation is around 4200 feet. From there you take a ATV track west for about 50 yards and then look for a trail leading down into a drainage on your left. Take this trail and it will take you down into the drainage and across and then starts to climb the other side.
This trail will get somewhat steep and rocky at times as it navigates up and over or around a few ridge lines and drainages to take you southwest and into the Black Canyon drainage. Along here you will have some fine views of the Verde Valley.
Once you turn the corner into the Black Canyon drainage the trail will level out as it traverses the south side of a ridge. This is what the drainage looks like that you will be heading into as seen from the trail above.
Along this area of trail you look for a ridge below you that sticks out south into the drainage with a saddle on it with a fire ring made of rocks. At this point you go off trail down to the saddle and then drop down the steep ridge on the west side of the saddle to find your way down into the bottom of the drainage. You will see a small drainage coming in from the north to the major one. You need to cross this above the intersection of the two drainages. This is a photo of the side drainage that comes in from the north
You cannot cross below the intersection because the drainages drop off into a slot that cannot be crossed. Once past this side drainage you then follow the main drainage upstream. It is a bit of a scramble.
If there is water flowing then the waterfall will be flowing too. You have to find your way around several small cascades and some rock pinnacles along the way that I found to be interesting.
Finally the drainage will turn to the right around a corner and the water fall will come into view. It is a pretty tall waterfall but I'm not very good at guessing heights (maybe 70 feet tall?) Many people also mountain bike down this trail. If you are going to do that you would need a car shuttle. Many people start at the top of the mountain and decent Coleman Trail or Gaddes Canyon Trail and then hook up with Black Canyon Trail as it drops off of Allen Springs Road (FR 413) at 6400 ft. elevation. The top part of the Black Canyon trail is in pine forest and runs along a small stream for part of the way. It it is a total of 7 miles from the bottom at Ogden Ranch road up to the top at Allen Springs Road. The bottom part of the trail is high desert type vegetation and there is more than a 2000 foot elevation climb along this trail.
If you are going to try the downhill mountain bike ride I would suggest you take the Gaddes Canyon Trail over the Coleman Trail. The Coleman trail is for hard core technical riders only. All of this is for advanced riders but Coleman is really very rocky, steep, and overgrown. Gaddes Canyon Trail is around a 2.5 mile drop down to Allen Springs Road. If you combine that with Black Canyon you have close to a 10 mile downhill trip. The Gaddes canyon Trail starts at around 7700 ft elevation so you will descend close to 3500 feet on this downhill trip. When you go down Gaddes Canyon and reach the Allen Springs Road (FR 413) you head left or east on Allen Springs road and the Black Canyon Trail will be on the right after more than a mile. Beware that the brush is overgrown in many places on these trails and you will need protection to not end up all cut and scratched up.
To get to the trail heads: For the bottom trailhead of Black Canyon Trail #114, turn off Highway 260 between mileposts 209 – 210 (south) onto the dirt Ogdon Ranch Road (ok for passenger cars). Follow this road 4.3 miles to the parking lot at the end.
To get to the Gaddes Canyon Trail, from highway 89A you take Forest Service road 104 around 2 and 1/4 miles to road 104B. Turn right and the trail will be on your left just a tenth of a mile before you reach the lookout.

John Prine, 10-04-94

This one is a very good Soundboard recording of John Prine. If you like John Prine this is a must have. It has Bonnie Raitt as a guest but that is really as just a backup singer. I was kinda hoping for her to sing a verse or two, but the show stands alone as a great document of Jonh Prine's great songs.

Grateful Dead, 9-06-1983

I have always felt this was one of the better shows from 1983. Disc two of this is just great in my opinion. It just jams seamlessly one song into the next. From Not Fade Away to the end of the show is a second source that is a matrix but still good. There are a few cuts and audience patches in the first set but still pretty hot. The tag on to fill disc three is with Stephen Stills at the Meadowlands the same year.

Mirror Mirror On The Wall


When you look at a mirror what do you see? Do you see the mirror or do you see what the mirror reflects?

Does it reflect light or darkness?

2 Corinthians 3:18. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the spirit of the Lord.
Here is another translation of 2 Corinthians 3:18. And we, with our unveiled faces, reflecting like mirrors the brightness of the Lord, all grow brighter and brighter as we are turned into the image that we reflect. This is the work of the Lord who is Spirit.
So one says, “beholding as in a mirror”, and another says, “reflecting like mirrors. “ Which one is right? One translation implies contemplating what you see. The other implies you are the mirror reflecting the image.

The answer is they may both be right. You say, “How can they both be right?” Well the verb originally used was Katoptrizo, and it can be translated either way. Which meaning did the author, Paul intend? He was relating being a Christian to the experience of Moses on Mount Sinai as we can see earlier in 2 Corinthians 3.
In Exodus 34, we see that when Moses returned off the Mountain after being with God and beholding God’s glory his face reflected the glory of God.
Beholding God leads to becoming more Christ like and this leads to reflecting God’s glory or light.
What do you do when you behold something? Is it a quick glance or just a casual look? I think it means to study or to stare or contemplate.

How might you behold, study or contemplate God today? How could you study and contemplate what God’s glory is? Well Jesus is the Word that became flesh, so to READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE you are beholding, or studying Jesus who is God in the flesh.

If the mirror is covered with dirt and grime what do you see? Does it reflect a true image?

Sin or disobedience of God in our lives is like dirt on our mirror. It makes us reflect a poor image of God to others.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says we are to be God’s ambassadors. When an ambassador of a country does something wrong how does it make the country look? Even if the behavior does not represent the country, it is how outsiders will perceive the country. It is not a true reflection of the country.

Does it say in 2 Corinthians 3: 18 to absorb God’s glory or light, or to reflect God’s glory or light?
Should we keep all that God gives us for our own benefit?
Of course not! Reflect it out to others! Matthew 5:16. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Does it say so they will praise you? No, it's not about you.

We can see in 1 Peter 4:7-11. We are to glorify God by the way we treat others and glorify God with a lifestyle worthy of Him.

You are stranded on an island. You are going to use a mirror (by reflecting the light of the sun) to send a S.O.S. signal to a ship to rescue you. What if the mirror had a mind of its own? Instead it would choose to send its own message. If it had a big ego it would say “look at me.” Instead of save me. If it was insecure it might not want to be seen and not send a message at all.
You can be a mirror to reflect God’s light. Don’t let your insecurities, ego, or pride get in the way. Let God be in control of you and send the message through you that truly reflects His glory and light to others.

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12. We pray that God may count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith with power. That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you and you in Him, according to the grace of our God

Garcia, Cippolina, Jorma Kaukonen, Casady, Papa John Creach, Nicky Hopkins, 10-21-1970

This is from a Tuesday night Jam session at the Matrix in San Francisco, CA. It is just long instrumental jams with Jerry Garcia and members of Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver. The source said it was taken off of a first generation reel that was John Cippolina's. If you like instrumental jams then this may be for you. Listed are three guitar players, two bass players, one keyboard player, and a violinist, it did not say who the drummer was sorry to say. There are also places where there are two keyboard players so there are more players than listed. I like jam one and four the best because they are full of guitar interplay. Number two is a Nicky Hopkins keyboard jam with Papa John's fiddle playing all over it. In all some cools stuff that is unique and different.

Give The Gift Of Living Water

Living Water
In John 4 Jesus meets a Samaritan woman at a well and said to her. "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that says to you give me a drink. You would have asked of Him and He would have given you living water". Again in John 7:37-38 Jesus is talking about "Living Water", He says "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water." So what is this "living water" that Jesus talks about? Well the next sentence, John 7:39 tells us, This He spoke concerning the Holy Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive. So let me give you a context of what Jesus said this on these two events. In the first event Jesus is talking to a woman, one on one, telling her that if you drink of this well water you will be physically satisfied for a time but the body will continue to thirst. In other words the things of the world will only satisfy for a short time. But if you believe in me you will find a drink of salvation that bring everlasting life. It is spoken of in Isaiah 12:3 "Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation." What Jesus is talking about if you believe in Him you will be saved and receive the Holy Spirit in you.

Now in John 7 Jesus is in a large crowd during the last day of the feast of Tabernacles and he talks again of living water. To understand this event we need to understand what was taking place on that day at the feast of Tabernacles. The Tabernacles feast or celebration was held every year to remember the time the Israelites spent in the desert and followed God. Tabernacles are small temporary structures like tents. The Israelites would come into Jerusalem from all over to celebrate and they would put up these small tent like structures and stay in them for a week. Each day the priests of the temple would go down to the pool of Siloam with a clay vessel and get water and bring it back to the temple and pour it out on the ground as a drink offering to commemorate or remember when God in the desert gave them water out of the rock as seen in Exodus 17. But what of that rock in the desert? Well Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:4 "All drank of the same spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ."

So on the last day of the feast of Tabernacles they did something different. On the last day the high priest would take a golden vessel down to the pool of Siloam (sent one) and fill it up and then he would march up to the temple with it and enter through the south or "water" gate. The Water Gate had special eschatological significance because it was identified by some rabbis as the south gate of Ezekiel’s Temple through which the water of life would flow to all the land as seen in the prophecy of Ezek 47:1-5(more on that latter). Then the high priest would pour out the water in front of the alter, and the high priest would read this verse from Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground: I will pour out My Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your offspring. Now this last day of the feast is called the Hoshannah (save now) Rabbah. This last day speaks of the future and the prophecy of the coming Messiah. Now the high priest would lead them in a prayer for the coming of Messiah. So in this context as people are praying for the coming sent one who is going pour out the spirit Jesus stood up in the crowd with thousands there gathered in the city and said "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water." Wow! As they prayed for Him to come Jesus proclaimed that he was among them, the "Sent One" had arrived. So at first he told an individual (woman at the well) that she would have living water in her. But here Jesus speaks of a river flowing out of us. This is seen in the prophecy of Ezekiel 47. Here Ezekiel saw a river flowing out of the temple coming out from under the altar and it became a wide river that flows and brings life. This is the spirit flowing out of us The temple equates our body. And the source is the altar or sacrifice. And as Ezekiel walks the water gets deeper and deeper. Just like as we get farther in our walk the spirit gets to flow more and soon it is a stream in which we can no longer touch bottom and it flows and takes us. So there is a picture of two parts to the filling of the Holy Spirit. The first is so we no longer thirst, so we have the drink of salvation. But the second is when the Spirit flows out and gives life to others. When all we do is hold the water it stagnates with time. But when we let it flow out to others we can receive more and it becomes a flowing river. So ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit and then look to give the gift to others.

If this interested you here is a link to an incredible man who teaches this in a far superior and dynamic way than I can. So check it out http://www.joncourson.com/teaching/teachingsplay.asp?teaching=S514

So now that we have talked of a Spiritual drink and a sacrifice that starts the flow of the Spirit in your life. Here is a place to give in a sacrificial way, and to give a physical drink to those who don't even have that. Millions of people on the earth don't have clean water to drink. Over 4500 children will die today of water-related diseases, but and you can help. There is a non-profit organization called Charity Water.

Charity Water brings safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. They have helped thousands and have already funded more than 3800 projects worldwide. So here is a link where you can be a part of it. After all Jesus said as you do to the least of these you do to Me. http://www.charitywater.org/

Sad Days In Arizona

Well I know it's hard to not know about the events that took place down south at a Tucson supermarket. The sensless shootings of a 9 years old girl, a congress woman, a judge, and many others. In all six people were killed and many others were wounded. All shot by one young man who has what appears to be mental illness of some kind.
Well I'm not going to place blame or try to say there is a solution to this kind of thing that can be found with ease. Freedoms come with problems. And I won't even attempt to talk about gun laws because there is no way to say that changing them would make any difference. I'll leave that debate to someone else as I'm sure people are already taking sides and using this event to push their agenda. What troubles me the most is a church that uses an event like this to push it's agenda and publicize it's extreem view. That church is called Westbro Baptist Church that has already made rediculous claims that this event is God's judgment. And that is saying it will protest at the funeral of the victims. Yep, it is the same bunch of religious extreemist that picket at soldiers funerals, and the same group that claims "God Hates Gays" along with a long line of God hates slogans they pump out.
Well God does not like certain behavior, and that is true. But God in the form of Jesus showed compasion for sinners and judged the prideful religious ones of His day. God in the form of Jesus stood in the way of the ones who wanted to stone the woman caught in the act of adultery. Jesus said in Luke 13:4 "Those eighteen on whom the tower in Silom fell and killed them, do you think they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem?". What he is saying is that bad things happen to people and it has no bearing on their level of sin. Jesus In Matthew 7:24-27 talks of two people who built houses, one on the Rock that is the foundation of Jesus and one on sand (not on the foundation of Jesus). Jesus said that the rains came to both, and not just to the unbeliever. Storms and trouble in life will come to us all our ability to weather them is the only difference. Jesus specifically states in Matthew 7 to not judge others. In fact the only thing we are to judge is the fruit of those who claim to be prophets (followers of Jesus in this case). Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?". . . . . "Therefore by their fruits you will know them".
Well I would have to say that the fruit of the Westbro Baptist Church is questionable at best. The fruit of the spirit as stated in Galatians 5:22 is "Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith". I see none of that in the actions of this group. Certainly saying that a 9 year olds death along with the death of believers as some of these were is God's judgment and choosing to use the funerals of these as a tool to make your point is not loving, joyfull, gentle, or good.
On that note let me say this. God is a God of love. God loves all people, for God so loved the world that he gave His Son. Not just part of the world. Suffering is alowed sometimes by God, but He can and does use it for good if we allow Him to. I pray that all the people who have been impacted by this great sad event can allow God into their circumstances so that He can transform what Satan wants to do for evil into something good. I pray that all the families of the victims can find comfort in Jesus and that they can in time find forgiveness toward the man that did this.
As for Westbro Baptist Church, I'll let God take care of that. Jesus said in Matthew 7:19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire."

Sea level, 2-02-1977

If you don't know Sea Level it was formed by Chuck Leavell, Lamar Williams and Jaimoe all who were playing with the Allman Brothers. The Allman Brothers were going through a break up of sorts in 1976 and these guys formed this somewhat of a fusion band playing combinations of rock, jazz, and blues. The name Sea Level comes from a play on the band leaders Chuck Leavell's name (C. Leavell). The picture is just from my old vinyl album cover from back in the day.

Sea Level

Tidal Wave

This is a guess on the players from a lineup they had in 1978. But this could have George Weaver on drums and Jaimoe because they play on the 1977 album Cats On The Coast and I'm assuming that Causey and Bramblett are in the band by this time.

Chuck Leavell: Keyboards

Did The Death And Resurrection Of Jesus Really Happen?

Did The Death And Resurrection Of Jesus Really Happen?

The most important event of Christianity is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. If you can disprove this event then the whole belief system is invalid. Apostle Paul himself puts it this way in 1 Corinthians15:13-17, Paul wrote, “But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised and if
Christ has not been raised then our preaching is vain. Your faith also is vain. Moreover, we are even found to be false witnesses of God. . . . . and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless.” In fact Jesus himself said in John 12:27 it was for this very reason that He came. Jesus Himself predicted several time that he would not only die but would then be resurrected (brought back to life). We can see this in Matthew 16:12, again in Mark 9:9, also in John 2:19-22, and several other locations. In fact in Matthew 12:40 Jesus said this event was the one sign to prove His authenticity as who He claimed to be, “For as Jonah was three days in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son Of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
This must be an actual historical event that happened not some story to portray an idea for there to be validity. One of the first things that I tried to prove wrong when I doubted was the fact of historical evidence. First off was there really a trial by a man named Pontius Pilot? Was there even a guy named Pontius Pilot? Because it says in the Bible, that Pilot oversaw a trial relating to Jesus, so if you disprove Pilot’s existence then you can put doubt in the whole account. Over the years, many scholars had questioned even the existence of Pilot and the reason is there had been no archaeological confirmation that Pilot ever existed, there had only been literary references to Pilot. But then in 1961, in Caesarea, in Israel, the Mediterranean port, an archeologist by the name of Antonio Froya, found an inscription in the amphitheatre that was about two feet by three feet that said this, “Pontius Pilot prefect of Judea has presented the Tiberian to the Cesareans.”
So archaeology, confirmed the existence of Pilot, and the fact that he was the prefect of Judea, where Christ was.
Well that does not prove the event but does lead to the credibility of the characters involved. So if there was a man named Pilot and there was a man named Jesus did Jesus really go to trial and be crucified? There is a historian of the time named Josephus who tells of the event, but the best account of the event that is on record is the four different accounts seen in the New Testament. These accounts of the event come from four different people who were all witnesses or received eyewitness account from witnesses. And these accounts were written and circulated while there was eyewitness alive that could have questioned the credibility or accuracy of the accounts. In the past there have been questions about the date that these were written and the accuracy of the transcription over time. But if you honestly evaluate the evidence you will find there is no room for questioning this. Read these scholarly studies and you will find the truth. William F Albright who is considered the foremost biblical archaeologist said: “We can already say emphatically that there is no longer any solid basis for dating any book of the New Testament after about A.D. 80.” William F. Albright, Recent Discoveries In Bible Lands (New York Funk and Wagnall’s, 1955) 136. Sir Frederick Kenyon, one of the leading authorities on the reliability of ancient manuscripts wrote this, “The interval between the dates of the original composition and the earliest existent evidence becomes so small as to be in fact negligible, and the last foundation for any doubt that the Scriptures have come down to us substantially as they were written has now been removed. Both the authenticity and the general integrity of the books of the New Testament may be regarded as finally established”. Sir Frederick Kenyon, The Bible and Archaeology (New York: Harper and Row, 1940), 288-289. William F Ramsay a scholar who tried for years to undermine the reliability of the New Testament had to conclude: “Luke is a historian of the first rank. . . . This author should be placed along with the very greatest of historians.” William F Ramsay, The Bearing of Recent Discoveries on the Trustworthiness of The New Testament (London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1915), 222. F. F. Bruce a professor of biblical criticism at the University of Manchester said this: “Had there been any tendency to depart from the facts in any material respect, the possible presence of hostile witnesses in the audience would have served as further corrective.” F. F. Bruce, The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable? Rev. ed. (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 1977) 33. In fact the writing of the New Testament were presented and circulated in the very presence of antagonistic eyewitnesses of Christ who knew the events. And Paul who was once a detractor wrote that Jesus appeared alive to more than 500 of His followers at one time and the majority of these were alive and could confirm what he was writing.
Not only are the New Testament accounts reliable and accurately handed down to us. But if we look at the behavior of the witnesses it can tell us if they really believed that Jesus was who He said He was and was crucified and then rose from the dead. If we look at all eleven of the Apostles who remained after the resurrection and one convert Paul, how did they act? They all were in an antagonistic world that did not tolerate the belief in Jesus. The eleven had proven to be cowards and ran and hid during the trial and crucifixion. But something changed them from cowards to ones willing to face death. They all knew that to teach and proclaim this Jesus as God and that He rose from the dead to save the world would mean persecution or death. And Paul who persecuted and sought to kill believers suddenly changed into one of the most outspoken advocates. All 12 of these men continued to do it in the face of the danger. In fact eleven of the twelve were put to death for it and the one who wasn’t (John) was boiled in oil and lived. What kind of men would risk torture, imprisonment, and death to spread a lie? What men would go to their deaths to perpetrate a mere hoax? No one would. But they would because it was not a hoax it is the truth. And it is the most important truth that has ever been. Because it means that Jesus defeated death and He is who He claimed to be, the one and only begotten Son who God gave as gift for you and me so we can have eternal life. It is up to you to accept and receive the gift or refuse and risk that you may not have eternal life with the one who created you.

Zawinul Syndicate, three shows from 1996, 1997, and 1999

In continuing down the Weather Report path here is some Zawinul Syndicate. I posted Zawinul Syndicate from 1998 so here are three shows from other years of that same time period. It shows how Zawinul varied the sound and lineup of musicians and was always experimenting. Joe Zawinul was was one of the most influential keyboard players of the jazz fusion movement and what is called World Music. He played and wrote music with Miles Davis on the ground breaking albums In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew. And then co-founded Weather Report one of the greatest jazz fusion band ever. Joe always brought together various different musical cultural influences making his sound a melting pot of world cultures. Joe Zawinul died of cancer in 2007but his music has changed the musical landscape forever. All three of these have great sound and are most likely radio broadcasts.

This first one has a very African sound and it should since it has players from Senegal, Cameroon, and Morocco. The Guitar player Amit Chatterjee is from India but his sound fits in well with the African rhythm section

This next one still has some of the African influences but also has some Latin American rhythms as it brings in a percussionist from Puerto Rico and one from the Ivory Coast. This is what is considered the "classic lineup" for Zawinul Syndicate because this is the linup that cut the album World Tour that is well known.

More Rick Griffin Artwork

New years is a time for reflection and looking back at the past year one of the most popular posts I did was the one on Rick Griffin artwork. Only the West Clear Creek post and a Muddy Waters post were viewed more. So here is some more of Rick Griffin's art that was not in the last post. First off here is some more of the early concert poster art. This first one is for a Captain Beefheart concert.
This second on one is for a Grateful Dead concert in Hawaii that was canceled and never happened. And here is some more of the comic book art. Rick Griffin continued to do comic book art throughout his career. This one is part of a Beatles song book project that Rick worked on.
Here is some more of the Christian artwork that he did latter in his life, from the Gospel Of John project. The first one is of John The Baptist from John 1:23 "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Make straight the way of The Lord, as said the prophet Esaias."
This next one is of the woman at the well in John 4:19 "The woman said unto Him, Sir, I perceive That Thou are a prophet." This next one is from John 18 when the centurions came to take Jesus. John 18:6 "Now when He said to them I am He, they drew back and fell to the ground."
This second one is a color painting from the same chapter, John 18.
Here is some of the work Rick did for the Grateful Dead latter in his career. This First one is for the Reckoning album that was an acoustic album that came out around 1981. This next one is a poster for the Grateful Dead Europe tour in 1990.
Lastly this is the cover for the Man From Utopia comic book. This comic book has a unique perspective on good and evil and Jesus as a savior. Apparently it was done as he was pondering his own choice to follow Christ. Shortly after this Rick decided to become a born again follower of Christ. So here is the link for the entire comic book. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NKZ34S8G Man From Utopia (1st Edition).rar
